  1. Dear Ms. Gilbert,

    I am an independent researcher, scholar, and bibliographer of the writer M.F.K. Fisher. As you must know, Fisher’s second husband was a Dillwyn Parrish whose sister and mother were an Anne Parrishes. I’m desperate to get my hands on a copy of your book Anne Parrish: The Story of Two Lives, which seems to have been long out of print. I would be happy to have an electronic copy or even the shabbiest second-hand copy, but I can find nothing available. Can you help?

    Many thanks for your kind indulgence,

    Randy

    • You might also be very interested in my last book: Maxfield Parrish: The Secret Letters. The book is based on the 325 handwritten letters the artist sent Nancy Roelker, a young woman with whom the artist had fallen deeply in love late in his life. The collection of letters was sold by Christie’s to a library. They use my book as reference. ags
